It so happened that my parents were visiting me last month and as usual my mom started cleaning my room. She threw away many things she thought were junk. Well, most of it was junk, but she also threw away the Microsoft Word box as it was empty and was just taking up space. Along with the box, went away the CD key that is used to install Word afresh on Windows. Thanks to the zebNet Word Keyfinder program, I quickly discovered the Word installation key, printed it on a piece of paper and stored away for later use.
You can also use the zebNet Word Keyfinder tool to retrive your Microsoft Word product key from your currently installed Microsoft Word edition. It supports all the Microsoft Word versions including Microsoft Word 2003, Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft Word 2010 as well as Microsoft Word 2013.
During the installation, it can try to install adware which is very annoying. But if you keep close vigil on the installation process and be clever enough to click on the Decline button two times, then you can avoid the unnecessary adware that comes bundled with zebNet products. After the installation, you can launch the zebNet Word Keyfinder from its desktop shortcut.
You have to select your installed Microsoft Word versions and it will instantly display the respective product key in the same window. You should click on the Save button to save the product key in a text file and even better – print it out on a piece of paper for later use.
There are no options or any other features in this small tool which makes it very easy to use. You can locate the Word Keyfinder.exe file in your computer and copy it to a USB drive to make it a portable application and run it on any computer you please.
Verdict: zebNet Word Keyfinder makes it very easy to find the Word product key in the blink of an eye. But it comes bundled with undesired software that can cause problem in Windows PC.
